When you go to article from Google its not blocked... strange

"The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office presented rumors of leftist violence as fact in at least two forums. Weeks later, the agency still hasn't explained where the debunked information came from or why personnel deemed it credible enough to share publicly. But it fits within a broader political narrative being pushed from the highest office in the nation.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed anti-fascists, known as antifa, are a serious threat to suburban populations. Trump stood in front of a crowd in Michigan on Sept. 10 and repeated his claim about anti-fascists planning to infiltrate the suburbs.

However, Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the federal Department of Homeland Security, acknowledged to Congress this week that white supremacists are the "most persistent and lethal" domestic threat to the U.S. Internal records also indicate the greater threat likely came from armed vigilantes roaming the streets in search of "antifa."

Racially motivated extremists and ad-hoc citizen militias appear to present the most pronounced threat of violence to human life, according to a Joint Intelligence Bulletin circulated to law enforcement in June by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center."

How a New Administration Might Better Fight White Supremacist Violence
www.homelandsecuritynewswire.com

...In the last four years, violence linked to white supremacy has eclipsed jihadi violence as the predominant form of terrorism in the United States, the Brookings Institution's Dan Byman writes. Beyond high-profile terrorist attacks in the United States like the 2018 Tree of Life synagogue and 2019 El Paso Walmart shootings, white supremacists have also tried to seize on the protests following George Floyd's death to foment chaos....

Byman dds:

President Trump himself has often downplayed white supremacist violence, but U.S. bureaucracies are slowly moving forward despite discouragement or indifference from on high. In 2019, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a new report that elevated the importance of white supremacist violence. In 2020, the State Department designated the Russian Imperial Movement (RIM), an ultranationalist white supremacist group, as a terrorist organization " the first time the State Department ever designated a white supremacist group as such. Such steps, however, are only the first of many that need to be taken....

Time for Trumptilians to attack the integrity of FBI again?

No... the trumpets will probably not even attempt to defend this. Better to not speak about it. Maybe it will just fade away. Buried under another Trumpy stink bomb.

Besides. Doesn't fit the Trumpy narrative.

"But... but... antifa!"

I might have said this before, but people who are concerned more about a handful of anti-Fascists and express no concern at all about what even this FBI and DHS call the greatest threat of domestic terror... who also have a fiend, er, I mean, friend, in the WH, have already shown their true colors.

"FBI finds right wing extremist greatest threat to nation"

Again?
Didn't they find this a few years ago?

Yeah, and even this admin finally admitted it last year.

NOTE! Trump tried that bullschist "Platinum Plan" last weekend: sneaking the designation of Antifa (whoever "they" are) as a terrorist group. The real threats are from right-wing extremist groups. Classic Rove-ian misdirection play by Trump.

I'm sure they are a threat. But I don't seem them killing innocent people during riots and looting. So, while they are a threat, how does this make any other national threat a lesser problem? Why do Dems support the murders, looting, and rioting going on by one group and then admonish another group for being the same kind of threat? I'll give you the answer...stupidity and sheep.

Facts and data make everything else a lesser problem.

"Right-wing attacks and plots account for the majority of all terrorist incidents in the United States since 1994, and the total number of right-wing attacks and plots has grown significantly during the past six years. Right-wing extremists perpetrated two thirds of the attacks and plots in the United States in 2019 and over 90 percent between January 1 and May 8, 2020"

Facts don't care about your feelings.

Wait really?

ANTIFA has killed no one.
www.theguardian.com

Democrats support BLM, not looting and rioting.

See Joe at #12.

You literally have Right Wingers murdering protesters by driving cars into them or shooting them. Kyle Rittenhouse is already facing murder charges.

Want a breakdown on the violence against cops? It's almost all Right Wing.
